Couple Faces 'Moving Pains'


KIRK CAMERON, star of the new Warner Bros. sitcom "Kirk," and his wife, actress CHELSEA NOBLE, have put their Beverly Hills-area home on the market at just under $1.5 million.

Cameron, 25, played Mike Seaver in the long-running family comedy "Growing Pains." Noble also appeared on "Growing Pains" and is a regular on "Kirk."

"We love working together, but at the same time, we play characters who don't know each other very well," Cameron has said.

On "Kirk," which airs on the WB TV network, Cameron, 25, plays an aspiring comic book artist who moved from Ohio to New York City only to find he has to oversee his younger siblings. Noble plays a medical student who is his neighbor.

The Camerons bought their gated Beverly Hills-area house about a year ago, then realized that they have to live out of state to do "Kirk."

The house formerly belonged to Anjelica Huston, and she bought it from Richard Chamberlain, who remodeled it, realty sources say. The house was built in 1948.

It has three bedrooms in 4,400 square feet, high ceilings and Japanese-style screens that open to the gardens and a black-bottom pool. The home also has an office/den and two stone fireplaces.

The home is listed with Madison T. Offenhauser of the Prudential-Jon Douglas Co., Beverly Hills.

Defense attorney ROBERT SHAPIRO, part of O.J. Simpson's Dream Team, and his wife, LINELL, have leased a Beverly Hills home owned by actress Doris Day, sources say.

The Shapiros are said to be renting the house for a year while they are having their earthquake-damaged house in a nearby gated community refurbished. They are paying just under the asking price of $10,000 a month, sources say.

Day has been leasing out the home for about 16 years. Built in the 1920s, the 4,000-square-foot hacienda-style house has four bedrooms and a guest house on nearly an acre, with a spa, all behind gates.

The home that the Shapiros are having refurbished has four bedrooms in a bit more than 3,500 square feet. Built in 1972, it has a pool and use of community tennis courts.

Model/actress PAULA BARBIERI, who announced last week on ABC's "PrimeTime Live" that her three-year relationship with O.J. Simpson is over, has sold her one-bedroom West L.A. condo for close to its $220,000 asking price, including furnishings, sources say.

Barbieri, 26, put the unit on the market in April. At the time, her attorney said she was selling the condo "because she has another home in Florida and intends to make that her primary residence."

Barbieri had owned the 1,400-square-foot condo in a high-rise along Wilshire Boulevard for four years. It was listed with Beverly Hills Realtor Steven Kaufman.

JASON BROOKS, who plays Peter Black on the daytime soap "Days of Our Lives," and his wife, CORINNE, have completed renovating their Spanish-style house in West Los Angeles.

They added a master suite to the 1,850-square-foot house, built in 1926, and turned one of their bedrooms into a master bath with a spa big enough for two.

The actor, 29, and his wife, who married in February, 1994, were first-time home buyers when they bought the home for about $350,000 last year, sources say.

"Days of Our Lives" is Brooks' first series, and he was voted Outstanding Villain at the Soap Opera Digest Awards earlier this year.

The home that LIBERACE built in Sherman Oaks with a grand piano-shaped swimming pool is for sale at $695,000.

Built for the late entertainer in 1953, the nearly 4,000-square-foot home has four bedrooms plus separate guest quarters and a library.

The pool has a painted keyboard on the decking. There is also a large crystal chandelier remaining from Liberace's days there and a mirrored fireplace with a glass mantle.

Sonny Fox of Prudential-Jon Douglas Co., Encino, is co-listing the home with Rita Goldsmith of John Aaroe & Associates, Beverly Hills.

The SULTAN OF BRUNEI is building a $15-million house on a 15-acre parcel in Las Vegas, sources say.

The sultan's house, which is under construction, will be used as a place for his dignitaries to stay when visiting the gambling city, sources say. He is said to already have one home in Las Vegas.
